Investing that fits with your world view

Invest in the world you want with a socially responsible portfolio. Use your wealth to support change and find new opportunities for growth and diversification, too.

Own a portfolio that thinks long-term, just like you

Put your money behind forward-thinking initiatives and support the change that’s happening more and more – like where companies are switching to renewable energy or hiring diverse minds at board level.

Addressing today’s challenges with a socially responsible portfolio that prioritises environmental, social and corporate governance factors – ESG – is the most powerful action you can take.

As government and industry regulation picks up pace, more and more of us are taking our first steps on this new journey – a journey where we all need to start thinking long-term.

Know your impact

Moneyfarm socially responsible portfolios are designed using funds invested in some of the most forward-thinking and impactful companies in the world – along with many others working hard to improve.

Aim for the same returns

In fact, simulated performance shows that from 2013 to 2021* investing in our most adventurous portfolio would’ve earned you up to 5% more than a regular non-ESG portfolio.

Stay diversified

With a fully diversified ESG investment, the same modelling shows you would’ve experienced similar market ups and downs to a portfolio with regular diversification*

*Moneyfarm backtest comparing our current ESG portfolios against their non ESG equivalent simulations and not our own regular mid-range portfolio due to its composition changing over the modelling period. Performance gains across our full range of portfolio risk levels were between 0% – 5%. Capital at risk. Simulated past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

Carefully designed, monitored and matched

Moneyfarm ESG portfolios are designed using exchange traded funds (ETFs) with an emphasis on environmental impact. Funds are selected and monitored using a standard set of MSCI metrics including: companies’ voting policies, involvement in social controversies and, future exposure to ESG-related risks.

Where we need more information on a fund’s suitability, direct communication with ETF issuers gives us additional detail and ad-hoc insight.

A base range of metrics used for all Moneyfarm portfolios ensures your socially responsible portfolio is also fully diversified and high performing – and all matched to your attitude to investing and investment goals so you’re sure it’s right for you.

Active on your behalf

Get extra peace of mind with Moneyfarm’s 5 point ESG Engagement Layer. Sitting on top of MSCI’s standard metrics, our engagement layer is a framework that enables us to prioritise funds where asset managers show the highest level of involvement with fund issuers and their organisations. Involvement may include voting to drive positive change within an organisation or monitoring of outcomes.

Measuring asset manager engagement helps us dig deeper to assess your porfolio’s effectiveness. Where all metrics are equal we’ll choose the fund where we see the highest level of engagement.
